Electronics contain heavy metals, including lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium that can be harmful if released into the environment.
In accordance with Indiana’s E-Cycle Program, the following items are prohibited from being discarded by Indiana households:
The HHW Drop Off Center accepts all of the above residential household electronics. There is a limit of five TVs per year. Most major electronic stores will accept televisions for a small fee.
Our vendor shreds e-waste items with data storage but if you would like to drill a hole or destroy the hard drive before turning it in to our program that is acceptable.
Currently, we will also accept freon containing equipment such as dehumidifiers, refrigerators, mini refrigerators, chest freezers, and small (window) A/C units. This is subject to change based on vendor.
We will not accept treadmills or other electronic work out equipment. These items may be properly disposed of directly to a scrap metal facility. Call the HHW Drop Off Center during regular business hours for advice or questions.
